The Smart Schools Bond Act was passed in the 2014-15 NYS Enacted Budget and approved by the voters in a statewide referendum held during the 2014 General Election on Tuesday, November 4, 2014. The Smart Schools Bond Act (SSBA) authorized the issuance of $2 billion of general obligation bonds to finance improved educational technology and infrastructure to improve learning and opportunity for students throughout the State. The SSBA requires that a Review Board review and approve districts’ Smart Schools Investment Plans before any funds may be made available for the program.(http://www.p12.nysed.gov/mgtserv/smart_schools/home.html, 2/24/2016)
The New Hyde Park- Garden City Park UFSD allocation for the SSBA is $459, 525.
